Marc Anthony’s ex-wife, former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, let it slip that JLo was indeed pregnant!
Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo Dia reports that in an interview on El Escandalo TV, Dayanara, 32, gave Jennifer’s pregnancy away. When asked how the children she shares with Anthony were going to take the news of a new sibling, Dayanara replied, “They don’t know yet because I found out a day ago. But I imagine they will be happy, because when my sister had her kids they were.” She went on to explain that she heard the news either through her assistant Tiana Rios (who once worked for Jennifer and Marc) or her manager, Jennifer Nieman.
Yesterday, Jennifer Nieman denied ever hearing official word about a possible JLo pregnancy, and today, amid growing buzz, Dayanara has released a statement ending her role in the rumor-mill. She writes:
“I have neither confirmed, nor have first-hand knowledge of any pregnancy. I had been advised of pregnancy ‘rumors’ by my manager who wanted to make sure I was aware in case my children heard anything at school that I may need to address; so when I was approached by a reporter who stated as fact that my children were to have a new sibling soon, I assumed that this had been confirmed. My answer to him was that though they had no knowledge of a sibling, that I imagine that they will be incredibly happy. Marc, his family and I have a very respectful and mature relationship which we work hard to conserve for the benefit of our children.”
Dayanara has two sons with Anthony, Christian, 6, and Ryan, 4. She filed for divorce from Marc in January 2004, and in June of the same year, he and Jennifer were married. ‘
Blah blah blah! Why won’t Jennifer just admit that she is expecting!? I suppose all this mystery does garner her a lot more press and attention.
